Duke Calhoun was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Giants in 2010 after catching 19 touchdowns during his time at Memphis. Calhoun made the Giants final roster his rookie year drawing all kinds of praise from the coaching staff throughout camp. Most of his playing time came on special teams in his rookie year and he finished the season with just one catch.

The coaches were just as impressed with Calhoun to start 2011, but the emergence of Victor Cruz along with draft picks Ramses Barden and Jerrel Jernigan didn’t leave much room left for Calhoun. He later injured his hamstring in training camp which led to his release.

Calhoun has good height but has a very slender build. He can run pretty well as he posted a 4.44 40 yard dash coming out of college. Giants were actually considering keeping Calhoun over Cruz at one point which says quite a bit considering the talent Cruz has shown on Sundays.

Calhoun could be one that surprises people in training camp if he picks up where he left on in New York. He does have a leg up on most of his competition as this will be his 3rd training camp in the NFL.

  • @RaiderBounty Supportive owner that fires GM after 3 seasons who was hamstrung with few draft picks. More like a meddling owner.
